One of our favorite home improvement destinations is Community Forklift, located near Hyattsville MD. Community Forklift is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to reduce landfill waste by salvaging building materials. While it is not in Brookland, let alone DC, we still post about it from time to time, since it’s not too far and is a great destination! Anyone working to maintain the original character of their home or simply fond of antique and re-purposed items would enjoy a visit.
We thought readers would like to know about this free monthly event. From a notice:
